12:34 pm
resilient people. my them by way isn't by will stories. and those are the stories that i want to tell. i love the archives because the kind of stories are right or sit in the past. and because i'm a write off realist fiction, i want my stories to reflect accurate, facts, for example, accurate events. my most recent novel out of darkness shining light is the story of the african companions of david livingston. and the journey that they made, carrying his body for over 9 months from what is now northern zambia, to what is now the east coast of tanzania. i wanted to flip the story,
12:35 pm
returned the gaze and tell the story from the perspective of the africans and not the story of the whites explorer, the missionary david livingston. so i had to spend a lot of time in different archives around the world. and i found an incredible amount of treasure here in the national archives. history is always told from the perspective of the great man, where there is david livingstone or sizzle, john rose, or robert mogley. i feel that my responsibility as, as emma, when writer is to tell this more when story in a way that it hasn't fully been told before. and i plan to do that with every book that i write. ah, we're going, we're going to the high 14. yeah, i'm setting up an entry office because i can write it whole,
12:36 pm
but i like the illusion of having a job to go to eating, especially when i'm writing. and right now i'm facing as self imposed deadline. i need to finish a manuscript by the end of the year. ah, i decided very early on that i wanted to be a writer, but i couldn't see how. it's only when i read assisted enter in was spoke nervous conditions. when i was already in law school that i realized that a black and white one woman could write a novel in english because the 1st person to do it. so by the time i read her and started reading other, you know toni morrison, alice walker and other black female authors. i was already in law school and loving my subjects of law. so i thought to myself, i can always be a writer, but i still want to be a lawyer at the time i want to solve true sold the middle east crisis. when i was
12:37 pm
in fortier, i fell in love with international trade law back. it's been a great background. i have a conference, so call it. so a panel discussion for the international bar association with the city and was, were discussing the major tre, just choose that have been going on in the world between the us and china. ok. hello. how are you? hi, can you hear me? are in this a conference call. i'm wearing my hat as international trade lawyer. i got was also a problem with the theme of my conversation. my part of the conversation is, is that african saying when the elephant fights? it's the grass that suffers. he's want me to be the dog development round, but only very few areas have been agreed on and we are feeling this effect in,
12:38 pm
in the developing countries. because the attention is all focused on the trade dispute. it used to be fooled into believing that everything is normal. you know people out there coffee mornings. she had the queen of hartfield that kind of thing. but was the process that enrolled life just change with this isn't buddies. the guy is the largest vegetable market in the country. it's also the place that is for many people who come to the city from elsewhere,
12:39 pm
the 1st point of contact to the city. for me, it was many, many years ago. i think it was about 4 years old when i 1st came to invite him to go and the bus terminal from our rural village in to live in a township called glenora. everyone glenora would then move to the suburbs after independence. 5, these are you guys could id say my level of math? i bought. okay. and did it have somebody 1 dollar to to pocket the my a port with when my 1st bill came,
12:40 pm
all it was received fairly negatively by the state. media is above way. i had a newspaper article in the herald and the headline was today's judas iscariot. it tina glover is created the impression that i was an anti government, and therefore, i'm teased in bubbly. right. once you read my work, you realized that i'm just talking about the ordinary every day life was involved with who are influenced by x m d 's and was of the so called great mu. so for example, in my food the grotto role, i deliberately did not mention the president's name was because i wanted to say she doesn't matter if the people i'm writing about defenders. you know, the magistrates, the police more. so i'm standing at the top end of rock'n'roll, which is one of my favorite scenarios, is the role that coordinate the city center to the famous township of body. and he
12:41 pm
says, read that to you, threatened with his 3 with memory. it's the streets down which the pioneer column came and planted the flag of the united kingdom. we have the subtlety of headquarters. we have the magistrate court and it's actually for that reason that i wrote a book called rock and roll, which looked sad. oh, import, and this is and all the different institutions that are on it in so the history of the city is embedded in the street. so the roadway on is actually towards the noun digger. but the pavement there was there gordon avenue. this is what i find so fascinating, because we're such a young country only 40 years old. so he kept clashing into history everywhere
12:42 pm
with silver fees. what, what do you have in the field? the call go to cape. derek and apple will, the 1st person went up to campbell river. oh, i told him all this is interesting. laugh from auntie chris, went to rhodesia in 1911 of the early settlers. it's been one before i was 8 years, also at independence. and so i have very strong memories offered deja and i went to school 1st in deja in a segregated township school. and then we moved to the suburbs after independence or i louise among standing castillo? sure. sure. our it's ok. my memory of an independent above is a child,
12:43 pm
i lodge me happy ones. but of course i recognize that not everybody has those memories because a lot of very dark things were happening in the country. many of which we as children, was simply not aware of. and it was really that was the period way this authoritarian streaks it in. but you know, when you're busy swimming in your, you know, of a bus swimming pool or, you know, going to live reading and inflation. you're not aware of all these developments to my shame because it is something i realized only when i went to law school. and we were reading judgments about so course dissidents who had been arrested in much of the land. and then you start to ask yourself how one was what was happening here.
12:44 pm
in november 2017. there was a what is called isabel were a military assisted transition from the mortgage regime to watch we hoped, would be a new dispensation. and this was one of many times, not the 1st time that the military has directly intervened in, in sub, in politics. and in retrospect, we should all have been very worried at such her as such a direct intervention. but after decades of more garbage rule, after 37 years, people had just had enough and were desperate to believe in change with on paper, it seemed like were taking your direction for the 1st time in many years would have an election that was internationally observed. the circumstances were so
12:45 pm
extraordinary and really involved the whole nation. people marched on the streets. it was just such a moment of happiness. they will promise re engagement with formerly hostile nations. and that's what got me excited because i am passionate about open trade and investment. ah, ah, i got the sense that maybe this wasn't wash, it seemed from early on, but he kept thinking, all right, we'll get better, we'll get better, we'll get better. but i think by about 1 august when the soldiers shot people on the streets, that's when i realized that. ready this might actually not go anywhere because. ready they're so very willing to use the course of element of the state we are 2 years into the coastal guy veterans and show this for yourself. the trail
12:46 pm
is so sad to feel any experience because we haven't really wonderful opportunity to move our country in a different direction. and i'm very she of all that we have mr. chance, oakdale hunger, nero dren, nor beans. in my a boarding school thing, we can't do bins anymore. but it afterwards with buddies who made it with amazon got very well, i'm a journalist. he is the best unpublished writer isn't boggling. why does it mean it's like roger federer before he won a grand slam? he was the best player not to win a grand slam. and that's you, you are the fit. roger federer i was involved in writing this outside release focuses on the economy. so there is no way you can write about the economy or writing about the politics involved with writing about politics means 2 things. either you'll get arrested. all you have to censor yourself. there hasn't been any
12:47 pm
big change. all the change that we want to see as artist what that was, what that call was. i was just so extraordinary. we all imagined that there was a real shift in policy in just the way governments, latrice people, village people were part of veterans. those that those much is in the streets and so on it, oh well without what fellow stake, hold it in over. it does like our thing, you know, people have every reason to be angry because no one wants to feel used in or no one wants to feel that there was simply instrumental in apollo retention game between fractions. so we're going to do the 1st official table reading of my new play, which is called black satellites. it's a play about the very controversial is my when right, a numbers of money keira numbers
